3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I cant read the effing commercial description, but I’ll tell you what i think it says. 330 mil bottle from Bevmo. $2.29 eh! Rich red-brown with off white head. Nose is sweet like a cola and medium fruit. A bit of vanilla and light spice. Clove? Big smooth taste fills the mouth. Sweet brown ale feel turns to lager dryness. Leftovers combination of aspirin and sweet dark fruit. Nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
into the glass pours a bright reddish purple beer. The foam disappears very quickly. The smell is strange sweet malty. The beginning part is very very chocolatey, coupled with some roasted malt and caramel. The aftertaste is bitter and chocolaty roasted malt. Something I would not expect from a German beer, this beer is the absolute chocolate hit. There can be no English Chocolate Stout tap tuned! I’m thrilled!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear red-chestnut beer with brownish, small fluffy head. Very bready, leafy nose, bit nutty; quite sweet, nearly red port-like. !!Smoked, dry tobacco/ash flavour, not sweet at all, leathery perfumed. Starts medium bodied, but with a rather empty finish. Nice! very special difference between nose and flavour, but nowhere off-putting. Txs, Stef.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Root beer looking brew. On the light side for the style, but smooth. Malty, slight hops, roasted coffee at the end. Not unusual for the style.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2009 Bottle from Big Lots!. Deep ruby in color on the pour. Sweet chocolate aroma. Smells like a Tootsie Roll. Good chocolate flavors, along with a bit of maltiness. Not very roasty. Smooth mouth feel. Pretty tasty.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Ledgers Liquor. 4.7% Pours dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is a mix of chocolate and veg - like anis. Medium body with sharp fizzy carbonation. Flavor is chocolate, malt and a touch of anise. Rather dry in the finish. It’s a different flavor palate from most dunkels. More a sipper than a guzzler. Develops a coffee touch with time.
